my laptop came with a dvd player and was pre-installed with windows 2000. the dvd drive worked, then the computer crashed, and compaq reinstalled everything and put win 98se. the drive still worked, but then i decided to upgrade to windows xp. the drive doesn't work anymore (it gets power, tries to read the cd, but then just makes weird noises and freezes up xp). i tried to upgrade the drivers from compaq's website, but it says its up to date. since i installed xp from a cd and it worked with windows 98 and 2000, does anyone know what the problem could be? the specs:

700 mhz pentium 3 ( randomly switches to 637, 533, 860, etc).
20 gb harddrive
128 mb mem (upgrading to 256 soon)
8x dvd-rom\floppy drive bay (one goes in at a time.
windows xp home(upgrade)
